It started with the estimate; 5 companies, all within a couple hundred dollars of each other. 4 of the companies scratched a bottom line amount on paper or a business card after a quick look from the street. But Chris from DLC was the only estimator who took a ladder off his truck and climbed onto the roof. The line-by-line estimate showed me exactly what we'd be getting and how much it would cost. There were measurements, calculations of all the costs and that's exactly what we paid. Chris figured our attic was under-ventilated and added a couple of vents to the list, which I quite agreed with. They replaced some plywood that was rotting as well.
The crew who did the work was efficient, clean as a whistle and careful. Their years with the company showed and everything was done with precision and care. So far a couple of powerful rains have pummeled the new roof, with no leaks and no lifting from the high winds.
Roofing companies get a bad rap, often with good reason. But the DLC gang does not fit the mold. I'd send any friend a recommendation to use this company.
